This cover features three of the writers featured in the issue: Louise Stern, Clare Wigfall and Jackson Martin. Louise is a prize-winning author who opens the issue with her contribution, “Rio”; Clare, who was a recipient of the 2008 National Short Story Award, wrote “The Party’s Just Getting Started” (page 29); and we are pleased to feature an extract from a novel by Jackson, a promising new writer.
The photographer for the cover was Jon Cartwright
. This was shot on location at the Dalston Boys Club—highly appropriate for our East London-themed issue.
